Default Trivia on Princess

On a couple threads, I noticed that "Trivia" is played on Princess?

Two questions:

1. Would this be on all Princess cruise ships, we will be on Sun Princess?

2. Is Trivia like the game "Trivial Persuit"? Or, does it have a particular theme?

Thanks,

Bill

Team Trivia is played on all Princess ships ... at least all I've been on which is 6 of them (plus a couple twice) - and it definitely was played on the Sun. Just returned from the Caribbean Princess where I won 7 of the 10 games I played - with different team members. Teams vary between 4 and 6 per team - depends on the Cruise Director's choice.

Yes, the questions are similar to Trivial Pursuit - sometimes they're all music type (that's mostly in the evening about 9ish when I'm at dinner) which is fine with me cuz I'm no good at that topic. It's usually played twice a day - morning (sometime between 10 and 11:30) and afternoon around 4ish.

Recently, on the Star Princess, those of us who wanted to play gathered in the Wheelhouse Bar. Some went as a group, some knew no one and joined a group then had a new set of acquaintances.
In our instance, one of the Activities staff had the questions-this was the morning trivia, and asked the questions from a notebook full of "games". Some seemed harder than others. The questions were diverse. My group won a game-none of the original people I started with at the beginning of the week.
There are different trivia games throughout the day and evening, some are specific--like Oldies But Goodies music, if it's right before the 50's show, for instance.
I thought it was fun. I did best on the music trivia. One member of the staff selected very difficult questions one morning. The other chap was more laid back about it.
One person is selected as the "secretary" for the group and writes down the group's answers. Grading is done by another group. When my group won we received a voucher for a nice gift in the boutique--and it wasn't a luggage tag--better! Alas, we laid the gift down somewhere after we'd gotten it and left it on the ship.
Have a good time testing your knowledge!! Lynne

Thank you CruzNut & Lynne.

When Trivial Pursuit was the rage, we played it often and enjoyed it.

With all of my worthless information knowledge, I think I could be the Cliff Claven (without the white socks) of CruiseMates.

Take care,

Bill

There's usually one of you in every group!! . However, don't change your answers too much. We lost some points that way. And, we all need one of you, as our brains are fuzzy, especially in the AM!! Lynne

On one of our cruises the Trivia wasn't Teams, just each to his own. We weren't playing, just watching.

The man sitting behind us won. We watched him write down his answers as the correct answers were given!

At that time I didn't say anything, but now I would ! I've become much more bold after being on CM's ,

Fern,

I caught (actually my wife did) two teams working together doing that. It's pretty pathetic what people will do to win a coffee mug. The difference was that I called the "ladies" on it. I did it quietly and they left but they were very embarrassed and did not play again for the last games.

I am not a cut throat trivia player. Many times I'll give up the prize if it's something I have or won't use it but cheating is something I won't stand for.

Mike;

A few years ago the professional golfer, Ray Floyd, wrote 4 strokes on a par 3. Everybody thought he had pared.

When asked why he had written down 4 instead of 3 when it was quite obvious that he had only struck the ball 3 times. He replied that during a set up he had accidently touch the ball. His interviewer replied that nobody would have knowed the difference. Ray's reply was: "I would have".

Moral of the story: You can't feel good about yourself if you cheat to win.

Bill

When my friend and I went on our Princess cruise about 5 years ago, we played trivia. It was with the piano player(he was great!) and it was old showtunes. We were very bad, and although we came in last(honestly!) we each won a Princess pen. It was a nice quality (heavy) & just recently ran out of ink.
I can't believe people would cheat!
